Authentic guacamole is super healthy and perfect for weekend entertaining. Plus we’ve got 5 tasty serving suggestions beyond boring chips.

Serves: 10-12


4 avocados

½ red onion (finely diced)

1-2 jalapeño chillies (stemmed, seeded and finely diced)

3 tbsp fresh coriander (chopped)

3 tbsp fresh lime juice

Salt to taste

1 tomato (diced)


1. Cut the avocados in half and remove the seed. Scoop the avocado flesh out with a large spoon and place into a mixing bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork until a very chunky mash is formed.

2. Add the onion, chillies, coriander and lime. Mix with a fork to keep chunky.

3. Taste and add salt or more lime to taste. Garnish with the diced tomato and serve.
